  1. Good evening ladies and gentlemen.

    I have just been made aware at work that there is a selection day for a promotion course on 20th March.

    Part of the selection is a two mile run, the other part is the RAF fitness test(bleep test, press ups, sit ups etc).

    Now, I'm an averagely fit 42 year old (6', 13stone), and what I would like to know is how to train to maximise the remaining time available and achieve the best results that I can on the tests.

    All advice gratefully received. Also, feel free to PM.

    I thenk yo.
  2. At our age (I'm 41) you're unlikely to be able to massively increase your physical fitness in a fortnight.
    In your situation, I would get on my bike. Any increase to your cardiovascular fitness will be useful, but running every day for two weeks may well shag your knees, cycling won't.
    Other than that, two weeks healthy living ie: early nights, plenty of fluids and eating well, should maximise your chances.
    Good luck.
  3. Thanks very much.
  4. Would you not get a soar Arse if you cycle for two weeks though :D :D :D
  5. Good advice IMO
